Help Please. I have a desktop PC and also a laptop and over the past few days my web pages have been very slow to open also I tried to download a 5.65mb file and it took about 30 minutes giving download speed varying fron 3.6 to about 7 kbps. I have a2squared, norton antivirus, spyblaster, and adaware SE. I am on BTyahoo 1mb service and contacted them to be told than spyware would be slowing down the computers, both computers, and I find this rather strange and also have the same protectiion on both machines. It is both computers which are slow. Would spyware slow down both computers from a 1mb back to dialup speed , I have ran a speed test and it states there are problems with the UK server. Can spyware slow down a 1mb service to dial up
No way i would say that any spyware would use enough bandwith to slow a 1mb conection to the speeds you say,would go with server probs,but if you have a real bad, like 1 million spyware apps connecting at the same time then it mayway slow it down lol.
I did not have spybot and I am down loading it now and it is taking ages. Surely if it was just the server others would be complaining about the poor service. As both my computers are both slow it sounds more local. Thanks for your help
